コンプREX No 5 was finally released today :lol: 80 full color pages of keshi madness for only 800円! This issues focuses on various Super Sentai keshi, Kamen Raider keshi, various SD keshi and many more.

http://www.mandarake...ex/5/index.html

I pre-ordered a copy which should be arriving next week sometime. I will post pics and more details when it arrives.

Automated Online/Overseas sales should be up within the next few days. You can always call or email the shop if you want it sooner :lol:

Note:
With the creation of the Japanese Keshi Category, I thought it would be best to start a general keshi コンプREX thread, as the Kinkeshi コンプREX thread was too Kinnikuman/Kinkeshi specific to really jive with later issues and information.

Hey uooz, you happen to know what the previous issues were about? Other than the Kinnikuman issue, obviously. I haven't paid attention at all since that one was released.

Reminds me of another book... I'll make a thread for that later. :lol:

Yes I do :lol: I will give you a quick run down.

#2 - NES/Famicom keshi - Mario, Zelda, etc
#3 - 1990's Shonen Jump keshi - Dragonball, later Kinnikuman keshi, etc
#4 - 1980's Shonen Jump keshi - Saint Seiya, Fist of the North Star, Dr. Slump, and a whole bunch of properties that I have never heard of...

Oh, and by the way, I think you should really enjoy the new issue as it is pretty much all Tokusatsu keshi.

Here is a link to all the other issues - click on the cover for more images and details:

Thanks for the quick answer! I might just do that, but I'd almost rather wait and see if they cover Ultraman or Godzilla. Not that I have anything against Kamen Rider! Quite the opposite - see avatar. :lol:

It is never too late to learn! Just focus on the most common ones - makes a real difference.

Ya, I was excited to finally get a flesh one of those. Also needed to bolster my 100t collection :thumbsup:

The Microkan is pretty rad - they will look for any keshi you need, and ship cheap. Everything in the pic (including the コンプREX) shipped for $10, 3 day DHL service.

A quick snap-shot of the section on Ultraman Keshi.

If you have an iPhone, I would highly recommend the Kotoba app. It includes the complete Japanese school system Kanji curriculum - great way to learn on the go at any level.

The Mandarake Microkan is holding a special Keshi event on the 26th of this month, and will be showcasing their new コンプREX themed keshi!

If you have ever read コンプREX, you will notice that there are two mascots that show up in every issue that take you through the Mandarake keshi facts and finds. C-Rex who plays the aprt of the sidekick is kinda like a plant dinosaur hybrid creature and now he has his own keshi!

Pretty cool huh. One just sold on YJA for 39,800円..... :turned:

The Hooded M is the Mandarake mascot, and he is holding a C-Rex keshi which is one of the コンプREX mascot characters.

There are a few different versions, with the one above being the most scarce.
